sterling-silver-vine-ring-natural-finish £109.99
The ‘Vine’ Rings are all hand wound and finished. This gives them their own individual and organic character. They come in three sizes. Through wear the rings will burnish and develop high lights. They are made from Sterling Silver wire. As they are not a solid band the skin is able to breath making them very comfortable to wear.Size Guide -Size Guide – Small (J to L), Medium (M to O), Large (P and Q)This is an industry standard method for ring sizing – if you do not know your ring size any jeweller will be able to measure your ring size for you. The sizing should take into account that the rings are an average of 15mm in width therefore your required size should be slightly larger than that of a narrow band.
